How to Score a Phone Plan for Just £10/Month


In the market for a new mobile phone service provider in the UK? Fortunately, you might be able to save a decent amount of money on your monthly bill if you currently have a mobile phone that works – even if there’s currently no service attached to the phone. All of this is made possible by the introduction of a relatively new type of phone plan, called SIM Only.

Basically, anyone who already has a mobile phone, whether it be a standard flip phone or a smart phone, can enrol in a plan that provides you with just a SIM card. Of course you can enrol in this plan without having a phone currently, but the SIM card is going to be useless since you have a phone to put it in! Since the service provider doesn’t give you a phone, they’re able to charge less on your monthly bill; even major retailers like T-Mobile offer these types of plans.

How to Score a Phone Plan for Just £10 Permonth

Legitimate, Current, and Reasonable £10/Month Plan

The first step in moving towards a new SIM Only plan for your current mobile phone, is to take a look at what carriers are currently offering. I know I promised a plan for £10/Month, and I’ll explain exactly what you have access to with that plan. Orange offers 500 anytime minutes, 500 text messages, and 100MB of mobile data with absolutely NO contract for £10.

However, you may also be interested in another option that doesn’t necessarily say goodbye to that contract, but will save you even more money. If you agree to a 12-month contract (keep in mind this is still half as long as most standard contracts), you can actually score this same phone plan for £2 less, making it a monthly payment of only £8!

As stated above, it doesn’t matter what phone you’re currently using – iPhone, Android, and even your normal phone are all compatible, you just need a SIM card slot. Unfortunately, 500 minutes and messages with only 100MB of data just might not be enough to cover what you need to get by in a single month, which is why there’s a plethora of different plans to choose from, regardless of the provider.

Double Your Payment, Quadruple Your Usage

To be completely honest, £10 isn’t a huge chunk of change to part with every 30 days. Unless you’re really trying to save a few pounds, it might be worth it to take a look at some of the plans that are a bit more generous with usage. For instance, Orange (the same company mentioned above), offers a very extensive plan for another £8.

For just £16 a month (or £18 with no contract), you’ll receive 2000 anytime minutes, unlimited text messages, and 500MB of mobile data. Right there you’ve multiplied the data by 5, quadrupled the minutes, and infinitely multiplied the text messaging allowance – all for £8 extra per month. The plans don’t stop there, and with a bit of research you’ll be able to find the perfect plan.

Who Offers the Absolute Best Deal?

There are quite a few places on the internet that serve as a comparison site for SIM card contracts, which allow you to bypass the process of tracking down URLs for each individual service provider. The aforementioned deal provided by Orange (500 minutes/texts, 100MB data for £8) is definitely a contender, but is there a deal that will give you more of want you want for a similar price? Possibly.

Vodafone offers a similar deal, with 300 minutes, 500 text messages, and 250MB of mobile data. Basically, this plan sacrifices 200 minutes each month and converts them into 150MB of data, which might work out really well for some people. Also, Vodafone gives you 750MB of UK Wi-Fi with every single one of their plans, which is a great bonus. The cost, however, is one more pound per month.

How about T-Mobile? Well, they actually provide an alternative similar to Vodafone, which sacrifices minutes for data yet again. This plan will allow you 250 minutes, 500 text messages, and 500MB of mobile data – twice as much as Vodafone, but with 50 less minutes. What makes this deal even slightly better is that it’s the same price as Orange’s cheapest deal at £8/£10 per month depending on contract length (1 or 12 months).

Choose a Deal That Works for You!

When it comes down to it, there isn’t really a “best deal”, as there are three different categories of usage. One person may value minutes more than texting or data, and another may just want as much data as possible; that person should probably choose T-Mobile, whereas the first person would probably be better off using Orange.

Just take some time to look over the different available offers and don’t rush into anything, although, since a lot of SIM Only deals don’t require contracts, you are a bit safer when rushing into things than with a normal price plan.
